I felt so alive here. The land in this country is so pure and beautiful. It's so untouched that you can even drink right out their streams and rivers. The energy of the land is so good it made my cells tingle. I've traveled around the world but lately I'm finding myself more drawn to natural wonders. I think a lot about the relationship between our health and our ecosystem. I live in a country where you could die if you sipped water in a lake (I thought that was normal), where our air is thick with pollution, our soil is far from its natural state... how can we imagine that it's not having a huge effect on our minds and bodies? I know it's affecting mine. My Environmental MD told me not to even go home to Miami because they use so many toxins there. Crazy. Anyone else think about this stuff too? This trip just made me more excited for the retreat I'm co-leading in Sedona because I'm personally experiencing the significance of getting out into unspoiled nature more and more. #iceland #travel #nature #energy #nurturenature #ecosystem #lifecoach #waterfall #mindfulness #deepecology #retreat

Sitting on the beach for the 1st time in 6 months watching my friend surf and taking it all in. It really is the little things! The Atlantic Ocean may not have the crystal blue water I became so used to in #miami but she's moody, mysterious and magical in her own right. I got so accustomed to the beach just being right around the corner we didn't even go a lot after a while. Who knew life would whisk me off to Austin and the ocean would be so far? Not taking a moment for granted now. #lifecoach #longbeach #nyc #ocean #nature #austin #gratitude

On my way home from a life altering retreat with Matt Kahn in Portland. Retreats are such gifts. You unplug more, connect more, breathe more, laugh more, open more, feel more, release more, realize more and love more than ever. You’re never quite the same person who arrived at the retreat again- especially with Matt Kahn’s retreats! 🤩 I’m happy to get home but I’m also sad to leave. Thanks to the people that made it even more amazing. 💗 .

5 years of marriage with this guy and I can definitely say 1. we survived “in sickness and health” like champs! 2. There really is nothing better than marrying your best friend. Happy anniversary @cuban_razor ! Life is so much more beautiful with you in it. ♥️

Our latest episode is a conversation with teacher Amoda Maa and it was lovely. We spoke about spiritual bypassing, agendas, tenderness and so much more. Enjoy!

I had a lively conversation with Brooke and Vanessa on the Bliss & Grit Show recently. Enjoy! http://www.blissandgrit.com/blog/amoda-maa

Amoda Maa   is a contemporary spiritual teacher, speaker, and author of Embodied Enlightenment . In our conversation with Amoda, we speak of course about being fully awake and fully human, we touch on spiritual bypassing, agendas, tenderness, and common misconceptions about the sp

When you can be in awe of the miracle of the aliveness of the other, and of the self, you know L O V E. 💗 .
This reminds me of one of my favorite quotes from Buddha “If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly our whole life would change.” .
.
We are not objects for the satisfaction of others. We are miracles. .
....
Knowing this has changed my relationship to myself, to others, to my coaching clients, to my work in general and to the world at large. .

Most people will just see their own projections and there’s nothing you can do about it; no matter how frustrating or heart breaking it feels.
.
Of course if you get the same “projections” from different people over and over again mayyyyyybe it’s time to look more closely at what’s up with you. 🤗

It’s not for you to “save anyone” from themselves. Just shine. .

Family comes in all shapes and sizes. We’re born with it, we find it, we create it. Here’s to family that are friends and friends that are family. 💗 .
I’m super lucky to have so many amazing people in my life.
.
And here’s to Austin, because like a true Italian hostess I so wanted everyone to enjoy their vacations and each and every one did!! From boating to hiking to graffiti to donuts to Bocce it was awesome. It makes me see even more how magical this city is. .

I’ve been busy loving my city with the people I love. .
.
After a week with my whole family visiting me in Austin I can say 1) I’m a lucky lady 2) it’s so so fun to spend QT with the young ones. I wish they lived near me. 3) I’m even more in awe of moms and their non-stop lifestyle 4) I’m officially an introvert who needs lots of quiet and small groups lol. I’m so tired!! 😂 (But I wouldn’t trade it 💗) .

Isn’t it beautiful? “An ordinary person doing ordinary things, not wishing to be more or less, content to simply be herSelf.” .
We used to think Enlightenment m...eant rising above it all and having all the things. Who knew it would be so ordinary ? Listen in to our episode last week with Dorothy Hunt to hear more. www.blissandgrit.com.

The quote is from Dorothy’s book Ending the Search. .

Self-doubt has a way of getting even louder when you’re expanding. If it’s acting up a lot lately you may just be up to something beautiful! Just know it’s all okay, take sweet deep breaths and welcome the blooming. 🦋

Breathe with love. You may not understand the depth of this simple statement yet. Just trust and try it. Breathe with a smile on your face. Breathe with the tenderness you’d have holding a baby or a puppy. Tune in and find a way to breathe so that it is a movement and expression of love. You can meditate. You can do yoga. You can sit with a psychotherapist. All are worthwhile, useful practices. Yet in the end they’ll all point you back to your breath. Breathe with love so you... may experience the truth that you’re already whole. .
